The Quezon City Council has approved the Gambling Regulatory Ordinance which seeks to protect the mental health of residents against gambling addiction and to maintain peace and order.

Introduced by Ivy Xenia Lagman, Franz Pumaren, Alexis Herrera, Raquel Malañgen, Marvin Rillo, and Godofredo Liban II, City Ordinance 2773-2018 provides broader strategies and policy interventions to regulate gaming, which includes establishing the Gambling Regulatory Advisory Council, adopting of gambling operations regulation policies, imposing gambling fees, and setting up a 24-hour gaming problem helpline.

The Gambling Regulatory Advisory Council will evaluate gambling operations, manage the implementation of the QC Gambling Regulatory Ordinance with the help of the Quezon City Police District and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, and conduct random inspections for monitoring and evaluation.

To further strengthen the campaign for the prevention of gambling problems, the QC Gambling Regulatory Ordinance requires residents who want to play in gambling establishments within the city to pay P1,500 for casinos, P500 for e-games, P100 for e-bingos for every consecutive period of 24 hours, and a P30,000 fee if the gambling establishment offers an annual membership.

Quezon City views gambling as a public health concern as it may cause financial, emotional, and mental harm to individuals, families, and communities.
